Roasted cauliflower steaks with tahini dressing


1 cauliflower
400 g chickpeas, pre-cooked

1 tsp mild sweet smoked paprika powder
1 tsp red paprika powder
Optional: ½ tsp red pepper flakes
2 tbsp avocado oil
1/2- 1 lemon
Salt and pepper

Tahini Dressing:

2 tbsp tahini paste
1 tbsp MCT-oil or avocado oil
2 tbsp lemon juice (or juice from 1 lemon, to taste)
A pinch of salt, to taste
3 tablespoons water, plus 1 teaspoon water as needed

Green salad for serving – optional:

Kale – washed and chopped
Sweet smoked paprika powder
Chili flakes
Fresh lemon
Fresh mint
Pomegranate seeds
Roasted pumpkin seeds or other nuts and seeds


1. Clean the cauliflower by removing any green leaves and soaking the whole head of cauliflower in a bowl of salt water or vinegar water for 15 minutes. Then rinse the cauliflower head with cold water and pat it dry.

2. Drain the chickpeas and rinse in cold water.

3. Slice the cauliflower into 2–2.5 cm patties.

4. Mix the marinade and brush both sides of the cauliflower steaks and chickpeas with the marinade.

5. Put the cauliflower patties and the chickpeas together on an ovenproof tray and bake at 180ºC for 15-25 minutes, until the cauliflower is tender in the middle and lightly coloured. Do not overcook! The dish tastes better and is healthier when al dente.

6. Make the dressing by mixing all the ingredients except the water in a bowl and mix well. Slowly add the water while whisking until the mixture is smooth and pourable. Season to taste.

7. Serve with the kale salad (or other leafy greens), chopped fresh mint, pomegranate seeds and toasted pumpkin seeds.

Tip: The dressing can be kept in the fridge for up to 5 days and used for other dishes. This dish can be served alone as a main course, or as a side dish. It is budget friendly, vegetarian and healthy.

Health benefits


Tahini paste is made from roasted sesame seeds. It has a light and nutty flavor and is great for adding powerful antioxidants to your diet. Tahini has anti-inflammatory properties and contains a variety of vitamins, minerals and monounsaturated fats. Tahini is a good source of phosphorus and manganese, both important for bone health. Manganese is also required for your brain function and nervous system. It is also a good source of vitamins B1 (thiamine), which is important for energy production.

Tahini’s health benefits may also include reducing risk factors for heart disease and protecting brain health.
